consent. if you are under the age of whatever it is in the state you are not of age. we must educate our young males about this and think about that 12-minute video where the young males are laughing about a young woman being dead and raped and thinking that is not funny. this is not a woman. this is a rag doll that they play with. >> help me get into the minds of a group of young boys. does something happen to them when they are in a groupt that otherwise they would be mortified by? >> of course. there is a by stander phenomenon that has been well documented for adults, too. adults are guilty about this not just young people but this is a young person story. of course group process and group pressures particularly for young males can affect how they behave. what is interesting to me in that video there are males within that video saying hang on a second here and they are sort of laughed down and teased down by the other males. this is very similar to the phenomenon we saw in the subway victim pushed in front of a subway and nobody did anything. we are less likely to act in morally appro
to educate the young boys about their sexual responsibility, and there has to be more discussion of that in the country, and the third part of this is that the politicians are losing elections by double digits, and is this where you want the draw the line in the sand. for a party to find the way out of of the wilderness and back into the mainstream of life, they continue to make decisions to the outside where most common sense americans are democrat and republican. >> and this is what is tricky about it. we are fine with the current vawa, and we don't want to expand it. there is a problem there, because you are saying that some women are better than some women. but a woman being sexually assaulted or raped is a woman period. whether she is a tourist from france or undocumented worker being abused by her boyfriend or a person who lives on the tribal land, she is being assaulted. >> so what happens is that you will get a temporary visa so that you can prosecute -- >> sometimes. >> but it has only happened one time, so it is only part of the bill. >> and we will up immigration in th
that are written into law is how divvy up transportation aid or education aid or whatever, dates from the 1930s during the new deal when at love the programs were initiated. the idea was that new york and areas like that were rich. we had to deliberately shift money from new york to the south. >> eliot: congressman, as always you're theoretically correct but to put a thin political veneer over it, the balance of payments of the blue states is negative. the red states is positive and the red states are saying cut government. >> it is grueling they don't recognize it. and that when we need the money they're so reluctant to appropriate it. >> eliot: that's exactly right. there is an esteemiousness about the red states when suddenly the shoe is on the other foot as the cliche stands. >> when there have been disasters in other areas we have always rushed to appropriate as much money as necessary and when the shoe is on the other foot, it suddenly turned off. and how much -- it took us eight years, pete king, myself, to get a bill
in education and infrastructure that help our economy grow. keep in mind that the threat of tax heights going up is only one part of this so-called fiscal cliff. what we also have facing us starting tomorrow or automatic spending cuts that are scheduled to go into effect. keep in mind that some of these spending cuts that congress has said will automatically go into effect have an impact on our defense department but that also have an impact on things like head start. there are some programs that are scheduled to be cut. we are using an ax instead of a scalpel. it may not always be the smartest cuts. that is a piece of business that still has to be taken care of. i want to make clear that any agreement we have to deal with these automatic spending cuts, those also have to be balanced. my principle has always been to do things in a balanced, responsible way and that means revenues as to be part of the equation in turning off the sequester as well as spending cuts. the same is true for any future deficit agreement. we will have to do more to reduce our debt and deficit. i am willing to do more
vital issues in the pending tray marked too difficult. so we've broken the monopoly of state education with free schools providing excellent education free to parents who send their children there. we've also established 2,000 academy schools. we've stopped dumbing down. we've introduced tough new powers on discipline in the classroom. there's a whole set of issues that are subject to this long-term reform from this government, issues like putting our universities on a sustainable footing so they can compete with the very best in the world and give everyone a chance to go to them irrespective of their background or income, modernizing our energy and transport infrastructure so we can keep up with our competitors in the global race, regulating our banks properly, so that immoral behavior and the gross mistakes of the past are not repeated. we're dealing with the challenges of an ageing population. we've reformed public-sector pensions so they are both affordable and fair for both public-sector workers and the taxpayer. in every case, we've put the national interest at the heart of this

with ideas. how we present things they talk about around the table and talk about educational institutions, likewise they talk about in the field of play that is fair and good and makes this country even stronger. i'm delighted that we've done that today. i appreciate the gentlewoman from rochester for her vigorous analysis today what we need to do looking forward. i'll continue to listen to that and i know the gentle lady will be on the rules committee and i look forward to that service that she will be making. with great enthusiasm, we will move forward in this new congress. madam i yield back the balance of my time. >> the 113th congress convened yesterday. on today's "washington journal," we'll talk about two senators will the legislative agenda for the new congress. republican senator john hoeven of north dakota and then maine senator angus king. also today, the government releases the unemployment report for november. we'll talk about the unemployment numbers and what they mean for the economy with marilyn geewax of npr. >> it's quite true that a people history is the result of how

security, and we're not going to want to cut education and roads and bridges. >> very, very quick final point because we have to leave it there. >> this is exactly what we have been saying on the wall street journal editorial board for the last six months. you can't get the money you need to fund all these programs by just taxing the rich. and we have only had this tax increase on the rich for what, 72 hours, and already people like nancy pelosi are saying we have to tax the middle class, and by the way, that's where the money is. you just said, erin, if you want the money, you have to go after the middle class. >> let me just say -- no, no, the rich among us, the wall street journal editorial page probably thinks the middle class starts around, what, $500,000 a year? >> the president thinks it's $30,000 a year. >> i'm going to hit pause, but we'll have you both back because this topic is not going away. >>> and now our third story "outfront," reliving the horror in aurora. today, police officers recalled the details of the movie theater shooting that left 12 dead. one officer said jame

. your union and other unions in the national education association, where do you stand on this, and how do you push become against this kind of conversation? >> so we do not believe that teachers should be armed in the classrooms. and, you know, this is the irony, ed. just last year, we're having a conversation about whether teachers should actually have latitude to teach as opposed to test, whether they should have collective bargaining rights. so some of the very same people who have stripped teachers of their collective bargaining rights or any latitude to teach now want to arm them. teachers do not want to be armed. we do not want schools to be armed fortresses. we want them to be safe sanctuaries. >> you would be in favor of a greater police presence? >> in places. you know, this should be done on a school by school or case-by-case basis. for example, you can imagine that why people in newtown would want a police presence in and around schools, because right now they're scared, and they want to have that police presence. it's the schools in newtown, for example are, in remote areas
